I was watching the video for this a few minutes ago whilst writing a German letter. 

Like these?

Those were included, yes. Put them all together and some other vowels, and consonants- and you get what I was writing.

I've always thought "Love Me Do " as a phrase quite interesting. It's a strange construct. Technically lots about it goes against the rules of the language. "Do" is at the wrong end of the phrase.

Still young and learning their trade, I've often wondered about where Paul got that idea.

As noted in another thread, I'm on a bit of a Buddy Holly binge, and I've found myself listening to 1958's Love Me (the same year as Love Me Do was written)...

And there at 1:14, Buddy sings, "Baby Love Me Do ". I wonder?

This sounds a lot like Honey Don't as well, especially those guitar bits.  I know they didn't write that song, but those guitar bits sound just like the ones in their version.

Carl Perkins was a couple of years ahead of Buddy, @William Shears Campbell, with both having rockabilly backgrounds. Perkins' sound was definitely an influence on Buddy's playing...

Perkins and Holly were two of main artists that helped The Beatles find their sound.

I wonder what harmonica John used on this song. The song is in G major and is basically built around the first (G), fourth (C) and fifth (D), yet the distinctive harmonica riff uses the flattened seventh (F) which isn't in the G major scale. It does include that chord in the bridge (on the 'one' in 'someone like you'). I'm going to assume that John used a C major harmonica for this one since it's the only major scale that fits. Let me know if anybody has a different interpretation.

I am not sure what type, but I know John said he stole the harmonica from a German music store during their Hamburg days. Don't remember where I heard that, through.
